PHOTOS: Game Cameras Set up to Catch Cougar, Catch Astonishing Lengths People Go to for Pranks


After hearing word of sightings of cougars near a park in Garland, Kansas, authorities installed two motion-activated cameras, hoping to see if they could get a glimpse of the animals.

Instead of cougars, the cameras captured something else that was worth sharing.

Along with images of wildlife, like skunks and raccoons, Garland County Police also spotted pranksters dressed as different creatures.

For example, cameras caught some “gorillas” that look to be having too much fun.


Another shot caught a werewolf and a different one caught another kind of monster.

Another snapshot revealed a person wearing a mask, while a different image caught a person dressed up as Santa Claus, who appeared to be holding a beer.



However, no cougars were spotted by the cameras.

The Gardner Police Department posted their findings to their Facebook page on Monday, where they mentioned the hijinks.

“We would like to sincerely thank the persons responsible, as it made our day when we pulled up what we expected to be hundreds of pictures of coyotes, foxes and raccoons. Thank you to the citizens who noticed the cameras. Your effort and sense of humor are greatly appreciated,” the post said.

The police are also looking to identify the rogue citizens, but not because they are in any kind of trouble; the police simply want to commend them for their efforts.

While people often report seeing something that looks like cougar in the area, actual sightings are “few and far between,” reported KTLA.

Take a look at how creative some of the folks around Garland, Kansas, can be.

You’ve got to hand it to these pranksters, who enjoyed having some fun with Garland police.
